Promoting a love of reading. Not just promoting literacy, a skill, the decipherment text. No, we want students who read, and we need citizens who read too, with understanding and pleasure. Berkshire thinks all publishers should be reading themselves and promoting reading in every way possible. Lucky for us, our favorite author on this topic, Mary Leonhardt, lives in the Boston area. She spent several hours Saturday afternoon signing and giving away copies of her latest book at the Berkshire booth.
